    I Used To Hate It

    Screw Dating

    What happened to the days I was single and could care less? What happened to the days when I was single, didn't care, and men flocked to me ANYWAY?! I don't know. All I know now is that now that I'm single, I feel only half as good without a boyfriend. Since my break up, which...

    Conflicted

    I feel like my last relationship messed me up emotionally for a while. On one hand, I am wary of losing control of my emotions again. Then again, I really would like to experience a committed long-term relationship. Maybe it is possible to be with someone and not break up?

    A Startling Contrast

    I  am single but have a special someone in mind, I have found an annoying contrast though. When I am just a rogue flirt, I am rarely taken seriously and people consider me like leftovers - something to be sampled at a later date. Suddenly when I voice that I have a special...

    Still Standing

    When we broke up, I was getting out of the car. We had just shared a small dinner date of silence and lobster, and I expected to hear the usual "I love you," and a goodnight kiss. This time, I got the kiss. Then, I got the, "I'm leaving you for your stepsister." And then he was...
